Probably Scottish sampler on a loosely woven homespun linen with a four-sided floral border and two rows of alphabets and numerals. Familial initials (WC, JC, AC, among others) are interspersed with heart motifs. The lower register features two peacocks facing a tree, surrounded by more birds and foliage. The condition is very good but faded. The mahogany veneer frame is very likely original. The sampler itself measures 10-1/2″ x 10-1/2″, with the frame it is 16-1/2″ x 16-1/2″.Scot
